File under "Yes." When this version of the band couldn't obtain rights to the name, they put their album out under their combined names, but it's still Yes by any other name. Jon Anderson's tenor wails through spacy lyrics, Rick Wakeman constructs cathedrals of synthesized sound, Steve Howe rips high-pitched guitar leads, and Bill Bruford makes his drums sound like timpani…

First up is Big Bill Broonzy pulling out all the stops for a smokey bistro set in '56 and '57, followed by a Roosevelt Sykes studio session from '61. Songs include The Honeydripper; Night Time Is the Right Time; Sweet Old Chicago; House Rent Stomp; Saturday Night Blues; Guitar Shuffle, and more.
Big Bill Broonzy’s recording career spanned from 1927 until his death in 1958. His repertoire was well recorded, from solo to duets to ensemble playing. He was rediscovered just as the "folk-revival" began in the early 1950s. Big Bill was a master of ragtime and country blues guitar. His playing was highlighted by a strong pulsating bass and melodic lead lines. Woody Mann carefully explains Big Bill’s techniques and style in this video lesson.
